Two user accounts on the same Mac.

I have two user accounts with Easy Books, both of which I use on the same Mac though obviously on different Mac user accounts. This enables me to keep 2/3 businesses on my account and share another business with another user when I am away without that Mac user been able to see my other businesses. Hope that makes sense. My urgent problem now is that I have tried to pay for online syncing on the second user account (after first using up my free trial) but when I try to log in I keep getting the message "Current receipt invalid or mismatched ds person id." Is this something to do with two accounts on the same Mac? My second Mac user has entered a lot of information onto her shared business from me but I am not able to access this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Garry,

    This isn't one of our messages, but it could be an Apple in-app purchase message. I know that on iOS, Apple compare the Apple ID that was originally used to download and install with the Apple ID used when purchasing in-app. They require the same one to be used in all subsequent purchases, which may be what is happening here.

    I see that you have one sync account running under this email address, and you've got service until 21 Feb 2014. I would advise purchasing the second sync account from the web site as well. To do this, log in to with the second user account details. You should see a button to purchase yearly service. This will update your second sync account.

    Please let me know if you need any help, include your sync username for the second account and I'll see what I can do to speed it along.

    Hi Matthew

    Many thanks, I think that seems to have sorted it. I was trying to purchase the online syncing I'm other account but it wouldn't let me. Using my old password seemed to do the trick.
